Today students saw a group of educators having fun, learning and working with each other and building a positive community. They look to us for these things all the time, not just when we are on stage. The quiet conversations we have with a colleague, the collaborative teaching we do, how we interact with our students; kids are always watching. It is important students learn the prescribed curricular standards. But just as important are the skills they learn from watching us work. It is through our example that they will incorporate these tenets into their own lives. I feel so lucky to work in an environment where the professional community gives so much effort to give the students these skills in a variety of ways and always with love and laughter.
